In these workshops performative and pedagogical exercises facilitated a dialogue around precarious work, organizational structures, inherited narratives and how these terrains play host to performances of power. Special thanks to the workshop participants: Gaby Barrios Michael Dean Ethan Hill Jonathan Koch Yunyi Li And the wider community of members and organizers of UAW 2865.
